EQUIPTT, is a Training and Services Adaptation Center (Category II), within the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). EQUIPTT began in October 2021, with funding by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 


EQUIPTT’s mission is to leverage technology to increase access, equity, and quality of trauma-related care across diverse youth, families and communities throughout the United States.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The EQUIPTT Center is committed to improving the lives of diverse youth and families impacted by traumatic events. We strive to ensure that our products, resources, and activities are designed to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. To accomplish this, we incorporate viewpoints and perspectives, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, culture, sex, gender identity, age, religion, language, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, political beliefs, and geography. Exposure to traumatic events and their impact affects individuals in different ways, and therefore, we respond with equity and sensitivity, integrating diverse perspectives in everything we do.
